So yeah. I went out to Worcester to attend Jonah's 21st birthday dinner. It was at Dalat, a Vietnamese restaurant. I much prefer Pho/Li's, personally. They had boba slushes, though. (I thought of Eric.) I ordered a coconut one, but they were out, so I got watermelon instead. It was yummy. Jonah ordered an avocado one, which I didn't think tasted like much of anything.
He turned 21 on Tuesday and had yet to buy his first legal drink, so afterward we went to a bar so I could buy him a drink. We tried the Blarney Stone first, but the music was So Loud. Next we went to Foo Bar, which wasn't as bad. He got a Cosmo and I got a screwdriver. They came in plastic cups. I think that was a first for me.
After we got back to his room, Jonah showed me the pilot episode of Weeds: "You Can't Miss the Bear." I enjoyed it. I wasn't sold on the mom's breakdown at the end, though. I had been reading her as okay with how things were going, so the breakdown felt pastede on. (Yes, I know she's putting on a strong front and all. But still.) Also, it's not hypocritical to sell pot to adults and not want it sold to kids; I wish she had made some sort of response to Josh on that one.
In other news:
People left me comments of hugs on my last root canal post. I honestly was totally not expecting that. Thanks, y'all. (My mom also sent me a sweet e-mail.)
Emma called me today! Yay for joy. And yeah, I so fail at "So what's been going on in your life?" (Er, fail at answering the question off the top of my head, I mean.)
